Comedy Central to Stream Bonnaroo Comedy Acts

Comedy Central says it will stream comedy acts from the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival next month.

The network announced Thursday that it will webcast a three-hour show June 12 featuring performances from Bonnaroo’s Comedy Tent.

The 10-year-old festival held inManchester,Tenn., centers on music but has long offered top comedy acts as counter-programming.

This year’s performers include Lewis Black, Donald Glover, Eugene Mirman, Cheech Marin and John Waters. Jon Benjamin will host. His Comedy Central show “Jon Benjamin Has a Van” makes its debut in June.

The show will package the acts from the four-day festival. It will stream on ComedyCentral.com and be available on mobile and tablet devices.

Music acts from the festival will be streamed by Vevo.
